This was our first time at this restaurant. Got off to a bad start when they didn’t have our reservation. They were able to seat us but our table was right next to the hostess station where there were a number of noisy people coming and going. We almost left but I’m glad we didn’t. The crowd settled down and our meal was fantastic. Highly recommend the restaurant.

Once you get past the noisy bar scene, it really is a quiet atmosphere with a nice view of the Yampa River if you have a window table. Very nice young man waiting on us. Good service. The parmesan fries were great and the peach bread pudding with ice cream was awesome. The lamb Osso Bucco was mediocre and very small. Fortunately it was half price during the shoulder season. Even then, I wasn't impressed. The small plate tuna was also mediocre. Pretty bland. Nice wine selection.

Great food. Table by the river in the evening. Host was very attentive and helped us find a table with a heater nearby so it was very cozy. Not cheap, but good value. Would definitely go back.

The food was great. We ordered the pork chop and filet. Both were cooked to our perfection the 1st time. The service was good so no complaints there albeit the host was quite stuffy. Although the food was delicious it was very expensive. Entrees were $40 to $50 each, not including appetizer, salad or drinks. This is a special occasion place for me not a general dining place.

Aurum is one of our favorites. On this visit our steaks were not cooked to our specifications but true to form they were great and redid them and of course were very nice about it. Great wine selections and great service. Always take visiting friends there.

We had lunch at Aurum a few days before which was outstanding and vowed to return for dinner before we left Steamboat. While the food was good, it wasn't a match for our experience at lunch. Maybe it was a result of high expectations which were not met.

First time at Aurum and the 3 of us agreed it is one of the top restaurants in Steamboat! Food, service and atmosphere were all top notch. Among our faves were the duck wings, asparagus salad and truffle fries. All were amazing! We will return on our next trip to steamboat!

The outdoor riverside setting was absolutely perfect. Our waitress was terrific. One of the entrees - a steak - was overdone, but was corrected quickly and with a personal apology from the manager on duty. Nobody’s perfect - but the attention to our having a great experience helped the mistake fade into the beautiful Steamboat sunset.

This restaurant is worth visiting again and again. Thank you, Aurum Staff, for making a special family occasion a night to remember.

Aurum serves one of the best whiskey old fashioneds anywhere. Who can drink just one? The happy hour menu is fantastic—from Parmesan fries to Thai fried cauliflower to duck wings to short ribs to salmon sliders and the angus burger. Just order a bunch and share. The grassy area keeps the little ones occupied while the adults savor the old fashioneds and the food. The only downer is that our server was disengaged until it came time for check presentation when a tip could be offered when he came to life. The additional servers who brought our food however were genuine and friendly and more than made up for the inadequacies of our primary server.

We were at Aurum to celebrate a birthday. The food was amazing; however, the service was just mediocre and that was only when you could get your waitress/waiter to stop by for a split second to see what you needed. For the price and how pretty the scenic view was, you would expect the service to be better.

My family had the very best meal and restaurant experience at Aurem. Our dinner was outstanding and made a very memorable impression. We booked ahead and asked for a table on the patio to celebrate my wife's birthday. Aurem delivered - they had a table ready for us on the patio, right next to the river. This was just wonderful! The service was excellent - Allison was very friendly and super helpful. The patio had a nice fire pit and furniture that we relaxed on between courses. My kids went to play in the lawn area right next to the patio. It was perfect summer ambience.

The food was outstanding. Everything was prepared with care and high quality. The filet mignon on the kids menu made my girls very happy - no boring chicken fingers for them. It was a good value as well.

This was the best dinner I've had at a restaurant in many years. It was perfection. Thank you to the team at Aurem!

Great happy hour but had a host w a bad attitude, a waitress-kylee- with rude comments and a don’t-care style, and hair in the food x2 and spicy- not-appropriate for kids appetizers. It’s ok at best. The host and Kaylee need attitude adjustments but the menu for happy hour was pleasant.

I had dinner here twice last week. We find that a salad and appetizer each is enough food for us. The only reason I did not give my rating 5 stars is that both salads I had were under-dressed. Virtually no dressing on either. The rest of the meals were very good.
